    Beautiful spot!! Only reason for 4 stars is how busy it is (for obvious reasons) and the price of the guest bouys, we picked one up and it is £21 a night (we are 29ft) but great spot easy access to beach and short walk to pub at end of river

    Soft muddy seabed. Gotten shallow over the last couple of years, but great if you have a dinghy and can see the seals or go to the beach. Also great for a quick stay. Buoys are a bit expensive, it if you're too chicken to go to anchor, you have that option. Easy access 24 hours and a great place within the Solent.

    The white pick up buoys are for visiting vessels. The others are for permanent holders so if you grab an orange or pink may have to move. Stay close to vessels when looking for a free buoy as channel is narrow. There is an isolated danger buoy that is slightly off position. Keep this to North and pass south of it as many boats have grounded out here. Go in on a rising tide and see where the limits and bumps are at low tide! Rubbish can go on a dinghy to Shalfleet and 15 minute walk from there takes you to a nice pub and there is also a small shop there but it has strange opening hours! There are some amazing walks from here but make sure to time them with the tide else you will be stuffed when you get back to the dinghy.
